So I hear you want to rise to the top ranks of #China’s Communist Party and try to take over the world w/ #fraud?

Well, I question your life choices, but let me teach you how you can do that.

Let’s start with some relevant assumptions and scene-setting to save some time…
… Assumption 1) #BigData is “the new oil” for #ML/#AI applications.

2) #China’s debt-laden #SOE’s and under-capitalized banks have a record of creative financing schemes, esp. when it comes to what used to be British #HongKong. Where better to defraud foreign investors?
… 3) State-managed economies, esp. Communist ones, control information and therefore lack proper “market signals.” They poorly allocate capital on the supply side because endogenous organic demand signals are suppressed. Consequently, Communist economies aren't self-sustaining.

Thread 🧵 1/

The FBI is going to be investigating the violence and threats being directed at school board members over mask mandates. It's coming from many of the same places as the #January6thInsurrection, and there's a money trail.

"When asked this past week if she was using the crisis to push private school vouchers, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos replied, "Absolutely."

I'm interested in a thoughtful and critical review by lawyers versed in #RICO, for a novel legal argument applicable to 'Hosts' of disinformation websites.

Why novel? Have 'ISP's' or the 'World-Wide-Web' already been accepted as, 'Legitimate Enterprises'.

Any takers? Image
PROTECTION RACKET
Hosting and defending websites against cyber-threats belonging to persons promoting or allowing illegal content, including: fraudulent claims about vaccines during a global pandemic, threats to harm government officials, etc.

"perpetrators of the protection racket may offer these services to protect vulnerable targets... or may simply offer to refrain from themselves carrying out threats on the targets..."

E.g., 'Providing or denying hosting services including DDoS protection, etc., for websites'

‼️Trump’s lies that the vote was “rigged” sparked a campaign to terrorize election officials—especially @GOP in #Georgia who refuted Trump’s lies—with threats of hanging, firing squads, torture and bomb blasts.

THIS IS NOT AMERICAN.🤬

#TrumpInsurrection
reuters.com/investigates/s…
Tricia Raffensperger—wife of @GaSecofState Brad Raffensperger—received multiple threatening texts:

“You and your family will be killed very slowly.”
“We plan for the death of you and your family every day.”
“Somebody in your family is going to have a very unfortunate incident.”
In November, the Raffenspergers went into hiding for nearly a week after intruders broke into the home of their widowed daughter-in-law. That night, Oath Keepers—a RW terrorist group that supports Trump’s bid to overturn the election—were found outside the Raffenspergers’ home.🤬

Extreme idea of the week. If you were an outsider couldn't you look at the GOP and their leadership over the last four years as a criminal organization involved in sedition, money laundering, obstruction and subversion of the democratic process? #RICO cnn.com/2021/05/09/pol…
I continually see mob like tactics in taking out those who won't swear to omertà, attacking critics, creating smear campaigns and trying to destroy the democratic process. Important note. I want the GOP to be a functioning party since taxpayers fund it.
Not a fan of Trump, Cheney or frat boy rapists. But Trump literally sent a rapey Florida errand boy to Wyoming to create a fictional protest. Trump is destroying the GOP. Which is almost one half of our government but a fraction of popular representation. theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/…

1. Looking at the documents produced under #FISA to @JasonLeopold @BuzzFeed and I spotted what may be a violation of federal law by Cambridge Analytica (CA) and arguably the Trump campaign in the 2016 cycle. Here are two pages of an email dealing with the contract in Sept 2015.
2. The email identifies "enriched voter data*" that could be produced by CA Connect, a "data manipulation and segmentation software platform."

It then goes on to explain what constitutes "enriched voter data."
3. At the top of the list on the second page is "Nationwide enriched credit file (400 data points for 220m individuals."
Assuming it's a reference to consumer credit reports, IMO this likely violates the Fair Credit Reporting Act, 15 U.S. Code § 1681b - Permissible purposes of

#Trump is now facing separate investigations from 5 independently elected investigators – from Georgia to New York to Washington – with only their constituents to answer to erienewsnow.com/story/43500742…
Jennifer Weisselberg gave investigators probing Trump's finances 7 boxes of documents she got in her divorce from the Trump Organization CFO's son

"Prosecutors learned details about the Trump Organization's finances after a key employee tried to withhold them in his divorce case.

But the judge in the divorce case forced him to sit for a deposition and hand over the documents as part of a subpoena."

Different groups have FOIAed this #Lyme crooks email over the years. On the surface it is appalling, but what does it really mean? “This battle cannot be won on a scientific front...we need reinforcements from outside our field.”

In short, it means they’re guilty. Of what? 🧵
They rigged the #LymeDisease case definition to conform to diagnostics that were designed to detect a small minority of cases that are genetically predisposed to produce a strong antibody response.
Allen Steere had done a ton of research on the association of various HLAs with different antibody responses in #LymeDisease. Everyone knew by the early 1990s that the people with an arthritic knee had a strong immune response but weren’t very sick.

Voter fraud was used in the 2008, 2012, 2014, 2016, 2018, & 2020 elections. We saw “found” ballots for one candidate in non-approved locations. We saw unexplained data anomalies. Evidence was substantial, but no investigations?! Time to end this... #MerryChristmas #Thread
#Election2020 Massive Voter Fraud & Election Fraud Orchestrated by Democrats & Conspirators, with Cover-Up Co-Conspirators in Media & Social Media platforms. This means #RICO , #Coup , #Sedition , & #Treason.
When you have this many election officials crying foul, data scientists crying foul over voting system data, voter crying foul over votes cast fraudulently in their name, dead voters, senile nursing home residents targeted, & people hiding machines & evidence, it is malevolent.

1. A reminder, @POTUS @RealDonaldTrump as candidate is not the commander in chief. His corrupt inducement to #Michigan lawmakers is a crime for which @Trump and the lawmakers can be charged and, if a person with standing wants to file the mother-of-all-RICO's, those bribery
2. predicates can be added. I trust the @FBIWFO will have the evidence for the @JoeBiden @TheJusticeDept to be able to get rolling on January 20th. I would also think a lot of top @MIGOP will spend 2021 in court. And fun fact for @SenMikeShirkey @LeeChatfield. They just became
3. infected by the Trump #RICO. By joining his conspiracy they are liable for all the reasonably foreseeable crimes that Trump has committed or will commit. I would think the DeJoy @USPS attack would stick and that they have their fingerprints on it.

Biden threatened a COG Coup with the Dark Winter comment...#TREASON

It is also notable that George W. Bush’s controversial and classified update to CoG plans in 2007, known as Executive Directive 51, was directly inspired by Dark Winter, and
Barack Obama’s subsequent executive orders on CoG gave near-complete control of American infrastructure to the Department of Homeland Security in a such a situation. At the time Obama issued those executive orders, O’Toole was
the DHS undersecretary for science and technology and also influenced those updates to the CoG plans. O’Toole is currently the executive vice president of the CIA’s In-Q-tel.

Inspired by Dark Winter...

1. Will there be a class action in 2021 to sue all of Trump enablers as part of a yuge! #RICO? All the donors, lawyers and politicians rolled into a single action to bankrupt them all? Don't all the Trump convictions prove there is an ongoing Trump racketeering enterprise?
2. Members of Congress are generally immune for what they say on the floor or in committee. Do you think @senatemajldr @GOPLeader have done anything to support the RICO liability in their homes, offices or in the cloak room? Once one of them flips wont' they're all be toast?
3. Do we now know why @JonesDay election law section guru Ben Ginsberg cut the cord? He's a smart competent lawyer and perhaps wanted to get his withdrawal paid at least a year before the firm files Bankruptcy. IMO McGahn will go down with the ship. Remember who always wins

@ericgarland *Speaking* of arson, agents provocateurs and covering tracks...

How *interesting* we were hearing about cartels and organized crime at the news conference. The. Next. Day.

Guess what the most-classic #RICO crime is?

*Narcotics.*
@ericgarland So if you're burning records, or just need manpower to create chaos, what's the *one* kind of organization you *don't* want involved while law enforcement all the way up to the @FBI and @DHSgov are watching?

Oh, yes. *Any* kind of drug cartel.
@ericgarland @FBI @DHSgov Now, before you start babbling about an all-powerful Barr to prosecution/living Mob security blanket, or what have you...

Remember, if you're burning buildings in a city and committing local, state and Federal crimes...

You're looking at local, state and Federal prosecutors.

@camorris @TheRickWilson Not sure when the crackdown will happen on all the illegal social-media operations, but it's even more trackable - with court-admissible evidence - than it seems.

And yes, the @FBI has that information...

On the other hand, "It's not hearsay if they're a co-conspirator."
@camorris @TheRickWilson @FBI And what better way to prove #RICO operations than documented communications, exchanges of funds, etc?

Could there be a downside of using existing criminal networks to further espionage operations?

Narcotics are an ideal RICO conspiracy, as it happens.

1. Among the things that @POTUS @RealDonaldTrump and @DeutscheBankAG are likely trying to hide is that the destroyed tax returns were part of massive conspiracy to approve bad loans. Fake numbers to make Trump appear creditworthy. #BankFraud. I think it can get 20 years.
2. In my view, once the proof becomes public, Tump will live in a world where the Civil #RICO cases will start not being dismissed. Plus federal statute of limitaions for financial institution fraud is ten years.
3. Even if DB shredded the returns, there may still be enough evidence for FBI or other forensic accountants to reconstruct the proof of the fraud. But if as I have suspected the DB is acting as an agent for a pool of lenders, they won’t be able to conceal the

1. There are 289 days to Trump being run out of the @Whitehouse. He & Koch owned @GOP @SenateGOP @HouseGOP & law firms they use for their crimes will continue to loot the US Treasury. We need to stay focused on our tasks at hand: Defeating Trump, holding the House taking Senate.
2. All the money and wealth Trump and the GOP steal remains the property of the United States and with @TheDemocrats in control of @TheJusticeDept we will recover it, times three, under #RICO. Every partner in the criminal firms will be penniless and charged with conspiracy.
3. IMO @KochIndustries and the #Koch directed DC law firms are all presently balance sheet insolvent due to the massive accruing liability.

We must win. Our families' lives depend on it. Keep focused. Keep evidence. And win in November so the we can begin the retribution these

Oh, here's more, including who was charged:

#Philadelphia City Councilman Kenyatta Johnson

Dawn Chavous (Johnson's wife)

Abdur Rahim Islam and Shahied Dawan (former execs of Universal Community Homes))

Looks like Johnson and his wife were expecting to be charged soon:

🔥#Ukrainegate henchman—Lev Parnas—allegedly met with Ukrainian-#Russian🇷🇺mobligarch Dmitry Firtash at Rudy’s direction and encouraged Firtash to help dig up dirt “as part of any potential resolution to his extradition matter” on #bribery & other charges.

nytimes.com/2019/11/25/us/…
🔥In June, Parnas advised Firtash to hire 2 lawyers already helping Rudy dig up dirt—Joe diGenova and Victoria Toensing—who would help BLOCK Firtash’s extradition to the US.

Firtash hired and paid them $1.2 million. In August, they met with Bill Barr to plead Firtash’s case.🛎
Yet another corrupt #QuidProQuo by Team Trump, but this time, with a reputed Ukrainian-#Russian🇷🇺mobligarch already under federal #indictment for #bribery and #RICO.

And the complicit @GOP will excuse yet more #corruption by @realDonaldTrump at the cost of our democracy.🤬

Family Courts make parents “admit” to whatever trumped up charges the #CPS courts make up as a condition for getting to see their children again. Parents who refuse are deemed “in denial”. Parents who consent become criminals. This is beyond unethical. Needs to be openly exposed!
It’s time to start the conversation on this HELL. The general public is unaware the #EndFamilyCourts & #CPS make parents into criminals as a condition to have time with their kids and innocent parents are forced into making guilty confessions like a witch trial. #Kids4cash #RICO
Nobody knows the WITCH TRIALS of #CPS & #EndFamilyCourts we MUST SPREAD THE WORD!!! Forced innocent parents into criminals as condition to see their children is to cover court crimes! Confessions mean NO appeals & blocked lawsuits nor undo unconstitutional Court forced GAG ORDERS

🔥@RudyGiuliani’s henchman Lev Parnas says *in May* he gave #Ukraine an ultimatum: publicly announce a probe of Biden, or else @VP Pence wouldn’t attend Zelensky’s swearing-in and aid would be frozen.

'Drowning in his lies,' Trump lashes out on Wed.

“Just to be clear, Trump is currently, this morning, calling on foreign leaders to investigate Biden in the midst of an impeachment proceeding about whether he has encouraged foreign leaders to investigate Biden”

Don’t forget:

Trump told RU FM Sergey Lavrov & then–RU Amb Sergey Kislyak that Trump was unconcerned about Moscow’s attack on the 2016 presidential elex.

Trump noted the RU that their assault on the US electorate was no big deal & by the way can you do again?
